PLDT update

Here’s our lovely apartment that had an internet problem.

On the corner was the PLDT modem that lacked in the internet department (see below)

After numerous emails, tweets, texts, phone conversations, and a cry for help, I decided to pay Php 5,000 of my bill that had grown to Php 15,000 for internet that hadn’t been working since March—just to see if they would fix it.
True enough I got a call a couple of days later checking if my Internet was working.
It wasn’t and I told the sympathetic lady on the phone about my problem.
A couple of days later, a technician came over to check and confirm that my modem was out of order and changed it to this new white one.

So my PLDT internet is back up, but I thought I was paying for a faster speed??


Right now I’m just concerned whether they will reverse the charges for the months I didn’t have internet, because as of yesterday I received a bill for Php 11,319.37.
Hoping for PLDT’s help in fixing this.
Meanwhile, when it rains, it pours. This morning the PLDT Fibr at home just died.

I would love to know why there’s a red light on my modem and my phone is dead, but the PLDT Fibr hotline is perpetually busy. How do we ask for help?

EDIT: Yay, internet is back at home! Bill adjustment na lang. Thank You Lord!

Sam Riley stars in Zegna ad campaign

Actor Sam Riley stars in Ermenegildo Zegna’s Autumn Winter 2014 advertising campaign as interpreted by the photography of Inez & Vinoodh with creative concept by Stefano Pilati and art direction by Giovanni Bianco.
Eight men in grey gather in a set designed with a minimalist decor.
On the background is a map of the world, the world of menswear, of which the men are the leaders.


In some takes, the actor is shot alone, confident in his elegant sportiness, which is one of the themes of next winter’s collection.


In other shots, Riley is photographed in contrast surrounded by others, maintaining the focus on himself, his new elegance and the leadership of the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture menswear message under the creative guidance of Stefano Pilati.


Sam Riley is an actor from West Yorkshire, England. His most prominent works include Control (2007), Brighton Rock (2010) and On the Road (2012).
Most recently, he finished filming Suite Française, starring alongside Michelle Williams and Kirstin Scott Thomas, and The Dark Valley directed by Andreas Prochska, which opened at the Berlin Film Festival 2014.
Sam also played the role of Diaval in the Walt Disney epic, Maleficent.


In the Philippines, Ermenegildo Zegna is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI) and is located at Rustan’s Makati, Greenbelt 4, and Newport Resorts World Manila.

I made this for you, Jeroen #RealDadMoments

Happy father’s day to all the great fathers in the world.
I am lucky to have married someone who turned out to be a wonderful father to the boys, when they aren’t driving him up the wall.
Some people have tried to put us down—my husband, even my children and I, but those people don’t know anything. They don’t know that love exists in our home every single day.
I’m more than lucky to have Jeroen in my life, and I made this video to let him know how much we appreciate his hard work and everything he does for us every day.
Happy Father’s Day, Jeroen. And thank you, Burt Bacharach, for the music :)

UPDATED: 2014 Hottest football players on my list

As sure as my husband will wake up to watch football every four years, I too shall have my pick of hottest football players in the FIFA World Cup.
I’m trying to figure out why football players are the best looking athletes for me. I’ve narrowed it down to the following reasons:
1) I like lean guys. I don’t like gigantic borta basketball players or swimmers with huge wings (no offence!).
2) I like hair. Football players have the coolest hair for some reason. If a guy isn’t that gifted in the face department, the right hair can make him look really dreamy.
3) I like fashion. Football uniforms can look really cool with the zip-up jacket, the shorts, and the knee socks. Whew!! And when they take it all off, we turn into mush!
I actually went through all the pictures of the players plus intense Googling to come up with my list.
Let me know which ones are your eye candy, or in case I missed someone.
In no particular order, they are:

1) Olivier Giroud, FRANCE

Dove celebrates fathers in touching new video

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t help but think of my own Dad and how I have to stop myself from bugging him all the time.
My earliest memory of my dad was when I was 3 or 4 years old, joining the maids in cleaning the house.
I had my own basahan (rag) and would wipe this dark table in our living room, only to have the dust fall on it again.
One morning my dad was off to work and saw me cleaning. Amused, he smiled and stopped to pat my head and give me 25 centavos.
I had the biggest smile on my face. Little did he know it would be the first of many times to give me money :)

For Father’s Day, Dove Men+Care has released a touching short video that shows the many ways dads care for their children.
Entitled Calls For Dad, the film features real moments that children of all ages share with their fathers—most of which are regrettably absent from media depictions of dads today.

Dove Men+Care is asking dads and their families to submit #RealDadMoments @DovePH on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, which will be heralded on to celebrate moments of dads’ care.
